Coyote Valley Pine Crest Fee-To-Trust Project
November 8, 2011

Environmental Assessment (November 2011)

This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to support an application from the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians (Tribe) for land to be placed into federal trust (Proposed Action). The BIA is the federal agency charged with reviewing and approving tribal applications to take land into federal trust status. The project site, known as the “Pine Crest Property,” consists of approximately six acres in Mendocino County, California, adjacent to the existing Coyote Valley Reservation. The fee-to-trust acquisition and subsequent development is intended to be used for commercial/retail development and housing for Tribal members. Up to three single family residential units would be constructed on the project site. The BIA will use this EA to determine if the Proposed Action would result in adverse effects to the environment.
